Overview

Nutrition experts for decades have recommended the healthy Mediterranean diet. Dr. Steve Parker incorporates the latest nutrition science breakthroughs in this newly revised second edition of his award-winning "Advanced Mediterranean Diet."

Dr. Parker's weight management plan is highly customizable, depending on the user's weight, sex, and preferred dieting style. In addition to a time-honored portion-controlled diet, Dr. Parker presents the world's first low-carb Mediterranean diet: the Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet. This is a two-for-one deal.

You'll discover 1) which foods are the healthiest, 2) which carbohydrates are particularly fattening, 3) why we no longer have to worry about dietary total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, 4) how to lose weight by watching portion sizes or calories, 5) how to lose weight by limiting carbohydrate consumption, 6) which of these two popular dieting methods is optimal for you, and 7) 64 easy and delectable recipes.

The traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, fish, olive oil, judicious amounts of wine, with modest portions of meat and poultry. This way of eating is linked to longer lifespan and reduced risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and dementia.

The book includes advice on how to avoid weight regain, instruction on exercise, a general index, a recipe index, and scientific references. All measurements are given in both U.S. customary and metric units.
